DEEP BITE is the most detrimental bite to the teeth and health of the jaw joints. It also has an impact on facial aesthetics. Often the lower teeth line or lower dental arch has a ‘bell-shape’, where the lower front teeth rise up much higher than the back teeth and sometimes it is so pronounced that the top edges of the lower teeth actually bite into the gum tissue in the roof of the mouth, potentially stripping the gums from the back of the top teeth. This can be a very serious issue and often leads to loss of the front teeth.
Correcting deep bite misalignment will not only improve the functionality of your teeth, but also in those patients who are growing, it could help the mandible to grow better and not to be trapped because of the deep bite. It will also make brushing and flossing easier – thus helping you to keep your teeth healthy. Of course it also dramatically improves the appearance of your smile too, and in many cases we are able to correct gummy smile.
